The film takes place in a WWI trench, where five diverse individuals have been unwillingly thrust together.
Despising one another at first, the five protagonists come to realize that they must learn to get along if they hope to survive. The pacifistic sentiments (not to mention the ethnic mix) of Niemansland would be verboten by the Nazi regime within a few years after its original 1931 release; indeed, all copies of this film were ordered to be destroyed by propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels.

Also wenn es schon unbedingt die englische Sprache sein muß, dann heißt es ja wohl nicht "verboten", sondern "forbidden". Oder?

Subject: Old propaganda, Modern politics?
The poor sods are dazed and confused, caught up in events larger than themselves, and helpless to fight the greater power that has brought them to this condition. Reminds me of debates amongst third-party candidates in the US.

Great. How would you classify this movie? Pacifist propaganda? Sure, no one wants war but how do you stop it? It takes more than five men. It takes a civilization dedicated to eternal values. One can always hope.

Subject: amazing film!
This movie is nothing less than incredible. In a time when Germany once again was about to head for conflict, war and destruction, it is amazing to see the kind of opposition there actually was to the nationalist ideas of the time and how widespread the ideas of international solidarity were.
The publication of this movie rewrites German and world history on the second world war. It's an absolute must-see for any serious history enthusiast.

Subject: wake me when the war is over
Did anyone actually pay money to see this snorer? To watch this film one would think the greatest danger anyone faced in WWI was being bored to death. By the time it ended I was really hoping that all five of them would get blown to bits.
